A Study Using Intravenous Paxceed™ to Treat Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis

2014-08-27 03:55:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Paxceed™ is being developed by Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). The main objective of this study is to determine the effectiveness of treatment with Paxceed™ in patients with RA. In RA, there is an increase in cell growth and changes in cell function. The active substance in Paxceed™, paclitaxel, has undergone clinical studies as a cancer chemotherapeutic agent and has demonstrated its usefulness as an agent that stops growth of cells and blocks certain types of cell function associated with RA. Because of these effects, it is thought that Paxceed™ might alter the destructive course of RA.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.

Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.

Antibodies found in adult RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS patients that are directed against GAMMA-CHAIN IMMUNOGLOBULINS.
